Staffing Adds Value

How Working in Staffing Can Make You More Valuable

There are many reasons why people go to staffing agencies when searching for employment. Many people lose their jobs and view staffing agency work as a quick solution. Others simply are just looking for something temporary and view the agency as a place they can get temporary relief from. What some people don’t realize is the fact that working in a staffing agency may actually be making them more valuable.

staffing agency make you valuableHow is it that working for a staffing agency can make you more valuable?

Well when you accept different assignments whether it is something temporary or long-term, you are gaining experience. It may or may not be in the field that you want to work on long-term, but in the long run you are becoming a more knowledgeable person. Many employers seek individuals who have a variety of skills and assets. The more knowledge and experience you have, the more valuable, well-rounded, and employable you become. It looks good on your resume when other employers see the abilities and exposure you have been in.

Staffing connects you to more than a job

Another reason is the fact that you are getting making connections and networking. When you meet people and you have a positive connection with them you will know that you can count on them for a reference when seeking for another job. Connecting with someone can open the doors to many opportunities. An introduction to a new field or growth within the company. Maybe a job you apply for down the road requires references. When you have someone that works in a relatable field recommending you, your chances of getting the position you desire increase.

You never want to burn your bridges in the workplace. One never knows when you will need a letter of recommendation or possibly even employment in the future from the same company. It is always great to know that you can rely on something if you are in need.

Temporary doesn't mean you should job hop

Although an agency you work with can make you more valuable, you also have to remember and be careful not to job hop. Staying committed to a job and being reliable is very important in the workplace. It can also discourage employers from hiring you when they notice that you have been to multiple positions in a short period of time. You do not want to be the person with 8 different jobs in a period of 1 year. It shows that you cannot be reliable and most companies want someone they can count on to do the job.

In conclusion, becoming more valuable and employable depends on your reliability and yourself. The opportunity is given to you when you work with a staffing agency, but It is up to you to take advantage and look for advancement and growth if you want to be successful.

Why Staffing and HR Are One in the Same

How Can We Be a Human Resource or Staffing Support to Your Company?

 utah staffing and hrAccording to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, “staff' is a verb that means ‘to supply with a staff or with workers.”

When you think of a Staffing Agency, what do you think of?

Are you on the staffing client end of the relationship where you are responsible for working with an agency to ensure your production needs are met through a well-trained, reliable workforce? Are you a manager or business owner considering whether to use an agency or not to support your current or upcoming staffing needs? Or are you on the other end of the equation where you’re the applicant using a staffing agency to help you find a job where you can gain experience and be successful? Over here at Your Employment Solutions, we are the common denominator in each of the questions posed here. We call that common denominator ‘Human Resources’ or ‘staffing’; to us, it’s one-in-the-same.

Going back to the dictionary, Merriam-Webster defines Human Resources as “a department within an organization that deals with the people who work for that organization.” With a staffing agency providing workers to their clients, I dare to consider them as the HR Department for companies who otherwise lack one, an HR extension or support center for those who already do have an HR department, and I also consider a staffing agency as an HR Department in and of themselves because they recruit and manage the human capital for themselves, as well as their clients.

The Staffing Human Resources Puzzle

There’s another piece to the puzzle though; if Human Resources are those who ‘deal with the people who work’ at the company, aren’t all supervisors and managers considered part of HR then? I would argue so! It’s not enough to simply hire talented and qualified workers. Companies must invest in them through proper on-boarding procedures, support them through training and development, and offer them compensation and benefits that are fair for the work they provide. Often times if any of these are missing from the equation or aren’t given much effort or attention, companies see an increase in turnover and a struggle to recruit the talent they need.

In a sense, everybody is part of Human Resources, but not everybody is knowledgeable or comfortable with being considered a part of Human Resources. Sometimes we need help.

So how can staffing agencies support your HR needs?

More specifically, how can YES (because that’s who I know and trust) support your HR needs?

YES strives to deliver to our clients talented contingent, temporary, temp-to-hire, or direct placement workers on time, the first time. We strive to help you meet your business objectives through our own human resource support system and by customizing to your particular business needs.

human resourceYES strives to create and nurture synergistic relationships where we can support your overall needs and goals by getting to know you and your business, your culture, any internal or industry standards, schedules and seasons, and any other aspect that is used by, or affects your human capital. We value and support proper on-boarding procedures so our workforce can integrate into yours smoothly and comfortably. We continually train and develop our own staff to ensure they are abiding by current employment laws and regulations. We also provide current local and national wage and salary information to our clients if desired so they can determine if they are paying fairly or competitively. YES also offers medical insurance and 401(k) to all full time W2’d employees, as well as any other contracted benefits desired by a client to support or coincide with their internal comp and benefit package.

To make an even longer story short, here at YES, we truly believe a company’s workforce is its most valuable asset. We take great pride in helping our clients succeed by providing the human capital they need and desire, and even greater pride in helping talented individuals find jobs where they can be happy and successful. To us, staffing and HR are one-in-the-same.

How can we be a Human Resource or staffing support to you or your company? Come by anytime and see how YES can help you!

Working for Your Employment Solutions is Filled With Opportunity

Many people may not know this, but I have experience working with another staffing agency. Since I arrived here at YES I can definitely see the difference from one employment agency to the other.

Overall, I’m grateful that they gave me the opportunity to follow this career. I can’t deny that the difference between YES and any other agencies is that Your Employment Solutions cares about their employees, every one of us is important. We are all treated with respect and for me that’s really important. One of the things that caught my attention is how organized everything is at YES. Everyone has a specific role in every department and that makes it easy to know who to contact if there is ever a problem or a question.

Working for YESEveryone Is Important

That is one of the things that I have admired since I got here as well as how YES has shown us how to value our co-workers and our employees that we talk to on daily basis. It’s beautiful when you see the trust our employees give to us. It makes you realize that you are doing a good job, it makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside when someone is genuinely appreciative of the help you gave them.

Being a Well-Rounded Recruiter

For me being a well-rounded recruiter is not just filling the job orders we have, but looking for the RIGHT person for the job. It makes the employee feel confident that their skills are being put to good use and the client loves when we find the perfect candidate. It’s also about making sure the employee feels appreciated and respected by giving them a position they would love. When the employee feels appreciated, the more likely they’ll stay at the job we gave them.

Working at YES is the Best

I can’t complain, I am able to work in an office where everyone is mature, where you can feel the companionship, the teamwork, and where everyone works towards the same goals. No one is compared to each other so everyone is equal making it easy to find help anywhere. With a new job comes new responsibilities to learn and with that I have to admit that here at YES it has helped me a lot in my professional career.

To finish off, I just want to tell you that I’m really happy working for YES. I know that I work for a company where everyone has the opportunity to grow and where opportunities are always arising. I know I’m working for the best staffing agency there is in Utah.

Trabajar para Your Employment Solutions está lleno de oportunidades

Como pasa el tiempo ya mi primer año con Your Employment Solutions, desde que empecé a trabajar para YES pude notar claramente la diferencia de lo que es una buena compañia de empleo, algo que me llamó la atencion es ver el valor y el respeto que YES le da a todos los empleados, aqui todo es organizado, y eso hace mucho mas facil el trabajo ya que sabemos a quien acudir si necesitamos de alguna ayuda.

Esa es otra cosa que admiro de YES desde que empecé a trabajar aqui me han demostrado que todos somos importante que todos somos como una familia, YES me ha enseñado el valor que tienen mis compañeros de trabajo y lo importante que son todas las personas que ayudamos todos los dias. Es bonito saber cuando las personas depositan la confianza en mi, eso me hace sentir que estoy haciendo un buen trabajo, es un sentimiento muy bonito cuando alguien te da las gracias por lo que haces.

Ser Una Buena Reclutadora

Para mi no es solo llenar una orden, es buscar a la pesona correcta para cada posición, pienso que cada persona tiene habilidades diferentes, pienso que cuando nos tomamos el tiempo para buscar algo que se relacione con esas habilidades es cuando el empleado queda contento y la compañia queda sastifecha, eso tambien demuestra el valor, el tiempo y la importancia que le damos en YES a todos los empleados y a las compañias.

Trabajar Para YES

Tengo la virtud de trabajar en un lugar donde todos somos maduros, donde se puede sentir el compañerismo aqui todos trabajamos en equipo para lograr siempre cumplir con nuestro objetivo, es bonito saber que no hay comparaciones aqui todos somos iguales e unicos y en todos podemos conseguir ayuda o apoyo cuando se necesita, obviamente como en todos los casos cuando es un nuevo empleo hay nuevas metas nuevas responsabilidades muchas cosas que aprender, pero tengo que reconocer que el ser empleada de YES me ha ayudado avanzar y crecer profesionalmente.

Ya para terminar solo quiero decir que estoy muy contenta de ser parte del equipo de YES, se que trabajo para una compañia donde dan oportunidades para avanzar y crecer, eso me hace sentir que estoy trabajando para la mejor agencia que tiene Utah, YES.
